Can't say I missed Belanger out there at all. Did anyone else notice the sequence where N Shultz had control of the puck three times in about 15 seconds, each time banging it off the boards right to a chicago player. Just ugly! Anyways, a wins a win.

Oiler's fans reach into Pandora's box--after the team, in their naive youth, opened it on this road trip--to find the only thing left inside: hope.

Finally, a pulse.

Kreuger seems to like reverting to his Swiss defensive tendencies when that's clearly not the strength of this team. It's not like you can't defend AND keep your foot on the gas.

You said you had literally lost control of your body. Seems a little much.

Plus this team is nowhere near not begin the league's joke.

Its really scary that an NHL coach doesn't recognize this. I think Ralph is in over his head with this job.

I saw MPS tonight behind the Hawks net holding off a man with each arm and desperately battling for the puck. He never got to it, but I have never seen as much physical compete from Paajarvi as he has shown in the last five or six games. He also made a beautiful feed on Gagner's first goal.

I have never been a believer in MPS, but he's showing a lot right now. Krueger needs to keep the MPS-Gagner-Yak line together on a consistent basis.

Props to BadMedicine who was calling for that line earlier than anyone on the board, and crow to me who said that MPS would never see the second line this year.

I thought the Oilers started to continue the domination until Dubi got all ******** and breathed life back into the Hawks. Still cant get over that play.. as its still replaying in my mind.

I think Whitney is back, I really do! Once Fister is back, this Oilers team is healthy again! Crosses fingers.. hopes for 2 wins in a row!

Do you really support what he did this game?

We started the game piling on the pressure. 4 strong lines pressuring the whole game to score, and he decides that after our best period of the year, and being up 4-0 we should change the lines.

From that point on we were absolutely dominated in every way. We outshot and outscored them in the first... And that never happens, so why the **** did he change it?

It's nice to win, but I'm almost to the point of preferring a loss until things change.

Chicago showed up like they were expecting a no-hit charity all star game. You'd think the Hawks would have learned by now that they still need to show up for games against the Oilers in the first period.

Once the time and space evaporated, we saw the same old Oilers - 4 shots in the 3rd. Fully expect them to be back to the usual ineffective perimeter game they enjoy playing by tuesday.

It was like watching Team Canada in the medal round of the 2010 Olympics (with a much less talented roster) - let's stop playing the effective style that gave us a big lead and play conservative defense.

Also, what's the rule if both your goalies get hurt getting run over? I think the other team should lose the game, no?

the oilers faceoff stats were pretty pathetic, except for horcoff.
considering his knuckle and first game back, he had an awesome game.

I'm an anxious person, okay? I have the jitters.

And dur, obviously. I'm excited about the win, as we all should be.

We got outworked, but I can't complain about taking two points from the NHL's best team on the road. The Hawks were weak in their own zone this game.

Gutsy win even though it was as nerve wracking as it could possibly be.

Guys needed a win. Me too.
He played very good. He needs to keep it up.

There's nothing on the line now but pride so I was pretty calm. I don't think they have a shot at the playoffs (maybe some of you do).

I don't understand why this game stressed people out. I guess I've got no hope for this season at this point, I've numbed myself out after all the losses.

Buddy, my point is that we won the game and complaining minutes after we won just blows my mind.
There's little happiness we can get out of this team, how about simply savor and enjoy the win. You worrying and complaining will not change how the team will be coached, that is a fact!
Stressing to the point where you can't even enjoy a win, (by the way the first one that Chicago lost at home this season), you'll never be happy once the wins do start rolling in. Cause you never took the moment to let it inside in the first place. Savor it man, you'll never know when the next one will come.
